Sculpture Description

Our design was inspired by our school motto and the wonderful themes of acceptance and equality within the Elmer books. At Richard Coates, we firmly believe that every child is a unique individual, just like Elmer! Our motto, 'Let your Light Shine', is taken from the gospel of St Matthew and encapsulates the aim of our school; to ensure that each child achieves their full potential academically, socially and personally, making the most of their gifts and talents. It was only natural that our own Elmer became an extension of our core values, and we were able to involve our whole school, from Nursery up to our Year 8s. Everyone submitted their designs and we looked from common themes to brings us to our final design, a celebration of our diverse community in the form of our Elmer, letting his light shine!
